I was introduced to Carol & Ryan through previous clients.  After corresponding via email, we met in person at a coffee shop in NYC, and from the first meeting I knew these two stylish designers would plan the perfect wedding!  Their entire celebration at the Old Field Club in East Setauket, New York, was a labor of love and the couple did all of the planning, invitations, design elements, decor, hand-painted signs, website, and so much more, themselves.  Their wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty, and the writeup from the bride says it all much better than I ever could!  I know there’s often lots of emphasis on the “stuff” and the pretty little details, and that’s certainly fun to show in photographs, but Carol & Ryan’s wedding day went way beyond all that.  Their day was as touching as it was beautiful.  See the feature here, and check out some of my personal favorites below. Enjoy!

  • Kristen - I love these. Such beautiful light and a soft, lovely color palate. <3 Laura, you rock!

Susan & Jon were married at the gorgeous Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side.  They had the perfect September day for photos at Central Park, then the sweetest ceremony. After that, it was time to celebrate and they hosted perhaps once of the most lavish, yet fun parties I’ve ever attended!  This group seriously knows how to have a good time.  Enjoy the preview!!





























  • Anni - These are lovely, beautiful work!

Camille & Dorian were married at the amazing Green Building in Brooklyn.  Their ceremony was beautiful and filled with many tears of joy as the couple exchanged vows and pledged their love for each other!  The tears continued continued into the reception, as their many friends and loved ones toasted the bride and groom, then Dorian sang to Camille.  Truly, not a dry eye.  It was such an honor to document this beautiful day!   Thanks to Jove from Jove Meyer Events for making the day perfect.







































Meet adorable Susan & Jon! They are the sweetest couple and I can’t wait for their September wedding at the gorgeous Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side. For their engagement session we headed to Central Park just blocks from their home. Susan & Jon were total troopers and you can’t tell from the pictures, but there was a major heat wave in the city during their session. They tolerated nearly 100 degree temps for the sake of photos!! Can’t wait for your big day, you two!





A few weeks ago I visited the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens for the very first time so I could scope out photo locations for an upcoming summer wedding. It was nearly the perfect time, as the cherry blossoms were in peak bloom. I visited on a afternoon that forecasted rain, so the gardens were quite empty and I was able to enjoy a few quiet hours wandering around and taking pictures on my favorite film camera, just for fun.  Lucky for me, it didn’t rain a drop ’til after I left.  I think this will be a beautiful spot for wedding photos. Enjoy!
